Microsofts subscription numbers also benefit from the fact that all their subscriptions are pretty much required if you want the 360 to be worth owning. I honestly dont see that as any kind of a selling point.

Internet Explorer........
That Skype feature sounds convenient at least. I wonder if Sony will have any something similar.

But I do think that Sony's new PS+ will be successful, as there seems to be plenty of Sony supporters (myself included).

And how exactly will multiplayer work on the PS3 afterwards? I thought I read somewhere that PS+ would be per console, not per account...

Yeah, I agreed with Bluexy, it's a DRAW; no one has upper hand in terms of online gameplay/services. I'd go to PS+ in early December though I must not use Xbox Gold for my 360 for the time being.

Not one mention of dedicated servers? Really? Why? Because PS4 doesnt have it for almost any games?

I'm against both of them, I shouldn't have to pay a monthly fee to use the majority of the features included with a device I purchase. That's why I stick with PC, where users can create their own dedicated servers, and everything stays free (Except the actual game, unless it's F2P).

Internet Explorer? Seriously? That was expected, but still...this better be better than the PC version. That crashed multiple times a day until I gave up and installed Chrome. Hope the Xbox Live Gold version is better, otherwise we're looking at a lot of frustrated players.

Should have mentioned dedicated servers which sounds like both companies are investing a lot in (remember that ps3 had more games with dedicated servers than the 360).

also deals. Deal of the weeks is the best thing ever and both are great in that regard.

That's not true though. Sony's first party games and CoD so far have been confirmed to have dedicated servers. o:

Sony and Microsoft handle dedicated servers differently, at least in this gen.

All Sony first party games are guaranteed to have dedicated servers (hello Demons Souls superior online) whereas Microsoft is now finally getting into dedicated servers in a big way.

By buying over 300k servers they can guarantee low costs for third parties which could see a rise in multiplat games gaining exclusive dedicated servers on the One.

Though Call of Duty Ghosts and BF4 (I believe) will have dedi's on both the One and PS4 and it's a trend that will most likely continue.

It's going to be interesting to see Sony's approach to encourage more dedicated servers to third parties if they haven't already (given the two flagship shooters both have them). Especially since they have remained quiet on that end (correct me if I'm wrong on all this).

Also WHY NO WII HD WITH THE UDRAW TABLET PERIPHERAL BLUEXY !?!?

That's good, because dedicated servers mean no hacking server-side. And client-side hacks suck, the best you can do with that is maybe aim-bots and other tiny gameplay things.

Whereas currently on the 360 version, people have infinite ammo, god mode, speed, etc. Sounds like fun though...

I know Call of Duty will for a fact have dedi's on both consoles and I'm pretty sure the same applies for BF4.

Killzone obviously will being a sony first party and so will Halo now that Microsoft got dem 300k servers.

Halo is literally the only thing M$ has going for them on the XBone, and the past couple games sucked. Maybe up-scaled 720p will help them out though on the newer games.

Hey I quite enjoyed Reach!

Halo 4 on the other hand.... =/ Thanks to games for Gold I finally got to play Halo 3 (a halo fan whose played every game minus 3? I'm absurd I know). And jesus christ was it good. To bad I'm restricted to like 2 playlists because of map packs.

Mass Effect 3 has proven that free map packs pay off in the long run with a very active userbase and I'm super excited to see Killzone Shadow Fall follow the same route. I want other shooters to do the same.

Pay for cosmetics or upgrades or whatever (so long as it doesn't uneven the playing field) but keep map packs free. Outside of Call of Duty and old halo games they are always useless as only a tiny percent actually buys them and you play on them rarely.

look at me getting off topic. I'm rebel.
